Applications for our 2024 Cohort have now closed. Applicants can expect to hear back from us regarding a decision in April.

Application Requirements

  • Application Questionnaire 
  • Unofficial Academic Transcript
  • 1 Letter of Recommendation


On the application questionnaire, we ask applicants the following questions:

  • Reflecting on your own experiences as a member underrepresented in neuroscience, how has this status influenced your personal/academic trajectory?
  • What do you hope to gain from this program?
  • What has sparked your interest in research?

Tips for the application

  • Take your time when filling out the questionnaire.
  • Your letter of recommendation should be someone who can attest to your academic integrity. Ideally, this would come from a professor or someone within academia who has had you as a student, but letters from a current/past employer or supervisor are also acceptable.
  • You should provide at least 2-3 weeks of notice to the person who is writing you a letter of recommendation.
  • Additional letters of recommendation are accepted, however you are only required to submit one as part of your application.
